I had a choice of buying a cow (!!!!), a donkey, sheep or to obtain a chicken tractor. While all those other ideas seem fun and permanent, we opted for the chicken tractor. We have built a mobile chicken coop on wheels. Raising chickens for four weeks seemed like a shorter commitment.
Today our Wwoofer volunteers Miles Weber and Andria Ahrens worked with our local carpenter Nairobi Anderson to cover the frame of the tractor. Half of the 'box' is covered with hardware wire, and half with roofing. Because of our April snow earlier this week we go to Carlock to pickup the chicks on Saturday.
Looking forward to attaching the wheels tomorrow after yet another snow tonight.
